Edward Barton, of "The Limited Mall" 
Company, voices In rhyme the plaint of the 
traveling actor. When the first greetings 
are over between members of the profession 
encountering each other "on the road," at 
railroad stations, In hotels, or on the street, 
the Inevitable question which Is the "catch 
line" of Barton's verses is then nsked. The 
traveling actor, however, Is not alone In the 

P, P. Craft, manager for Conroy & Mack, 
In "The Rising Generation," drops Tai 
Clipper a little line telling how be recently 
saved ten cents on a deal with a transfer 
man, white all the time the man thought he 
was getting the best of the bargain. 

The company made a one night stand at a 
small town in West Virginia. They had left 
most of the baggage in Cumberland, where 
they had played a Ave nights' engagement. 
The agent ahead of them had mnde the iisuul 
baggage contract of twenty cents the round

Manager Craft copied thn following rule* 
and regulations posted on the doors of a 
small hotel In Alton, West Virginia. It will

of ordinary hotel freedom. Perhaps the land-

charge made by the landlady of a boarding 
house where some of the company were stay- 
ing during a one night stand In tho town. 
One of the members had a room with a lire, 
the price being 1 1.60. Another of the com* 
pany bad an adjoining room with no heat. 
Ing resources. As there was a connecting 
door, the two actors took advantage of this 
by leaving It open during tbelr 6tay, thus 
rendering tho tireless room comfortable. 

After the occupant of the room with the 
tiro had settled his account with the land- 
lady the other approached, tendering his 
settlement for his short tenancy of bis room, 
which would bave been cheerless but for the 
courtesy of his neighbor. 

asking and answering of the oft repeated 
question, "Where do you go from here?" for 
the commercial drummer asks and answers 
It fully as often. Those "on the road" will 
appreciate the following lines, written In a 
moment of Inspiration, and sent to Tbb 
Cmffib for these columns, by. Edward Bar- 

Where Do Yon Go Fboh Hebe? 
The oft repeated question . 

That's asked of you and me, 
Is heard the wide world over, 

Wherever we may be. 
We hear It on oar travels, 
We hear It far and near, 
That hard-worked, worn-out chestnut, 
"Where do you go from here?" 

We hear It In the morning, 

Likewise again at night, 
We hear it served for dinner, — 

To avoid it, try we might 
'Tie asked us on the highway, 

In weather dark or clear ; 
Will they put some other query 

Than "Where do you go from here?" 

Qod help the poor old actor, 

Our troubles help us bear; 
Oar paths are rough and stormy 

Enough to turn our hair. 
And when our days are ended, 

And we're stretched out on our bier, 
Let's hope onr mourners will not ask, 

"Where to you go from lurtt"

trip. When the company alighted from the 
train, which left only eight trunks on the 
platform, the transfer man approached Man- 
ager Craft, and In disappointed tones asked : 

"And Is that all your baggage T 

"Tea," was Craft's answer, "we needed 
only that much for this stand." 

"But your agent said you had thirty 
pieces," said the man ; "you couldn't eipect 
a fellow to haul only eight, trunks at twenty 
cents the round trip." 

"Well, how much do you want?" ssked 
the manager, quite willing to pay a reason 
able advance. 

"Well," said tbe man, making a hurried 
mental calculation, "I can't do the Job for 
a cent leas than a dollar and a half." 

"Is that your final decision 7" asked Craft, 
smiling Inwardly. 

"That Is," was the firm reply. 

"All persons stsy out of the kitchen. No 
drinking allowed In tbe house or on tbe 
premises. No vulgarity. No swearing. No 
gaycty, romping or rowdy'ng, and no shoot- 

"All persons thst are drunk or intoxicated 
will stay out They are not wanted, and 
we bave no place for such persons. 

"Visitors will only be admitted to tbe door 
and there they must mske tbelr business 

"Each boarder will go to tils room, but 
will not admit any visitors. 

"Also all rooms up stairs will be locked 
on Sunday. 

"If any one thinks they cannot abide by 
these rules please stay away." 

Cecil J. Lionel, of Hoyt's Comedy Com- 

The landlady, after accepting the amount 
agreed upon, Ihon hold out hor band, and 
curtly sold : 

"I'lfty cents extra, please." 

"I "or what?" naked tbe surprised actor, 
unaware of having Incurred any additional 

■Tor beat," was the terse reply. 

"Ilut thore was no fire In my room," re- 
monstrated the actor. 

"But you bad tho door opon Into your 
friend's room," said tho careful landlady, 
"and I want fifty centa extra for the 'hot 
air' that went Into your room from bis." 

When Lionel settled his lire bill tbe land- 
lady magnanimously Informed him that she 
was charging only for tbe coal and wood con- 
sumed, and that sho never charged anything 
for the "uae of the stove." 

There Is a certain playwright In tbe pro- 
fession who has a far higher estimate of 
bis own work than bare bla friends. One 
day at the Lambs' Club not long ago, while 
exploiting one of his plays that had ones 
been presented for two consecutive nights, 
he grandly exclaimed : 

"At all events, though my play had not a 
long run, It waa heralded with a big 'flourish 
of trumpets.'" 

"They must hove been penny trumpets," 
was the satirical rejoinder of one of the 
group, a remark which happily was not loud 
enough for Uw would-be playwright to hear.

(.Continued from B. 0. it.) 


"The Bev. Horatio Bolton has new, per- 
haps, received his Just due of honor as a 
pioneer of the modern problem. In Germany 
be seem* to have been chiefly known through 
the medium of Alexandre; but most of the 
beat work la actually dated later than the 

fublkatloo at Alexandre's great collection. 
n England fair too little attention baa been 
given to the history of the problem, and Bol- 
ton has too often been regarded merely aa tbe 
last of the composers of long problems after 
tbe fashion of Mendhelm. ft Is, In fact, 
true that Bolton was essentially a composer 
of long problems at a time when tbe prob- 
lem In more tban Ave moves was fast be- 
coming eccentric, and of seventy positions by 
him given In Alexandre's collection only six 
ure In less than Ave moves, while only 
eighteen are In less tban six. His earlier 
work Included conditional problems In 44, 
51 and 67 moves, respectively. Tbe compo- 
sition of such monstrosities he abandoned 
later, but In bla later work the proportion 
of. long problems la at least aa high as It 
was earlier. His last .published problem was 
In 24 moves. (This, 'The Propeller,' we have 
given.) He composed no two-en, and rela- 
tively very few conditional problems. 

"It must be observed that the tendency 
to shorten tbe problem did not arise directly 
from the abandonment of realism or plans! 
blllty. Tbe sacrifice of plausibility merely 
made It easier than before to compose short 
problems capable of giving to a solver tbe 
pleasures of effort and of admiration. This, 
of course, Involved an Increase In tbe num- 
ber of such problems ; but that Increase was 
directly due to other causes. It waa due to 
the attempt to obtain pure and economical 
mates, and to tbe desire for strategical unity 
and brilliancy of point ; and It was due to 
tbe desire to obtain variation of value and 
an lncreaae in atragetlc aubtlety by tbe use 
of quiet moves. 

"In bo far aa Bolton was a composer of 
long problems In tbe style of Mendhelm or 
of Bone, and in so far as he adhered to the 
doctrine of plausibility, he was not so much 
tbe head of a school aa an Isolated reaction- 
ary. But adherence to the realistic theory 
of the problem was merely a tendency In 
him, and a tendency from which he constantly 
freed himself In order to give full play to his 
invention. He waa an experimenter at once 
on tbe old and along the new lines. His 
practice waa on tbe whole far less realistic 
than that of Anderaaen. It was not essen- 
tially reactionary; It was rather of tbe na- 
ture of an attempt to combine the new Ideals 
with the construction of long problems. For 
the character of tbe mating position he, In- 
deed, cared little, nor did he aim at obtain- 
ing variation of value for Its own sake, even 
though owing to bis free use of quiet moves 
some amount of variation la a common feat- 
are In his problems. Like Andorisen, he was 
essentially a strategical composer; but be 
was superior to Anderssen In tbat bis power 
of Invention was less fettered by considera- 
tions of plausibility, and In that be made a 
more careful and economical use of Black 
pieces. As an exponent of essentially pro- 
blematic strategy lie stood, I think, higher 
than any of his contemporaries."

a pang to know that the fate of tbe Ly- 
ceum baa been decided, and tbat the cheery 
housebreaker will soon be at bis Iconoclastic 
work on a building In which was Inaugu- 
rated, by Henry Irving, the artistic re- 
generation of the English atage. Tho site 
Is to be occupied by a new music hall, with 
a Winter garden, a restaurant and prome- 
nade attached, and it Is to be run on the two 
shows a night system. The promoters are 
obviously reckoning without their license, as 
there can be no certainty that they v;il> 
obtain It. On the contrary, I should Imagine 
that It will be odds against. Perhaps, how- 
ever, they ar-3 following In the policy of

not yet realized what a menace this new

I understand It la to be run on tbe highest 
lines of the American family music ball, 
which does not take Into consideration any 
excise privileges whatsoever. That It Is 
meant to make a bold stroke for tbe best 
of all patronage, that Is, the family trade. 
Is proved by the fact that they are already 
seeking the best classic tulont. It Is only

F. P. Sargent, business manager of Hngcn- 
heck's Trained Wild Animal Show, writes 
regarding the Hagenbeck exhibit for the 
St. Louis World's Fair next Summer: "Our 
concession was the first nlloted on the 'pike,' 
and is, of course, the choicest location. It 
has n frontage of 338 feet, with a depth of 
470 feet, taking up one tenth of the entire 
.ipacc nlloted to amusement concessions. 
This entire area will be covered with one 
Immense building, the style of which will 
be of foreign architecture, and from the 
present plans wii! easily be most attractive. 
The living animal panorama will surround 
the entire building on the Inside. This pano- 
rama will be laid out similar to a caravan 
In a circus menagerie. The panoramic effect 
will be scenic, emblematic of tbe different 
parts of the world from which the animals 
in the foreground come. This in itself would 
not be anything extraordinary were it not 
for the fact of the illusive effect, which, to 
nil outward appearances, does away with 
ull iron bars and caging. In other words,, 
the different animals will be thrown around 
the building in a complete circle, and the 
public will be allowed to walk within six 
feet of them, nnd while they will be able to 
see the different animals distinctly, there 
will be to nil appearances, an entire absence 
of Iron caging or screening. This effect eml- 
natcs from the brain of Helnrek Ungenbeck, 
the oldest son of Carl Hagenbeck, and It has 
required two years' bard work on his part 
to perfect this wonderful Illusion. We will 
have. In all, over twelve hundred wild and 
trained animals, among which will be. forty- 
seven black mane African lions, worked uv 
Hcrr Oldoff. In the largest steel arena ever 
constructed for an amusement enterprise we 
will present a herd of fifty elephants work- 
ing in one group. Carl Hagenbeck has been 
over six years In getting this group together, 
with the result that there in not an elephant 
In the group that measures less than seven 
feet in height, and there are ten which 
measure nine feet." 

Tub Raps write: "We received twenty- 
four answers to our advertisement In your 
holiday number, and have signed contracts 
with Phil Ellsworth's Shows. We will per- 
form our trick shooting at the opening, and 
give an exhibition. Up to April 23 we will 
work North, at hotels. 

Tim Asiatic Exfosition Co., Incopo- 
rated, conducting Gaston Akoun's Mysterious 
Asia aud F.mplre of India, on the Pike at

matle fare, there fs also no question that, H,^' -t w,,l !iM in iV iebiit was au ' 

us un example of play construction, it Is la 
mentably weak. Then, loo. the auditor Is com 
IM'lleil to submit to a prolix exposition of one 
of tbc many sides to the uiurllul problem, 
und- he Is quite upt to weary even of tbc 
iii'uily turued sentences with which tbe play 
abounds, and crave for something strenuous 
In the line of happenings to. revive his inter- 
est In tbe story. Here lies tbe main fault 
of this. play, a fault which Is a decided 
handicap. The author treats tbc subject 
of morals very bluntly, but there is nothing 
objectionable' In tbe way In which the sub- 
ject Is brought forward, und the lack of 
uiiluiatlou Is directly responsible for the play 
being nulnterestlng. - Tbe splendid work 
contributed by MUs HushcII and her clever 
ussoclates held uttentlon, as it deserved to 
do, and redeemed tbe evening to some extent. 
The Intent Ion of tho play Is to show the 
difficulties of the position of Juquellue Car- 
btulrs, a young girl, who lias been brought 
up under Irregular circumstances. llcr 
mother Is charmlnc. but frail: ber father 
■die never knew. - llcr own aspirations are 
fur the quiet and the respectable lu life, 
aud In the endeavor to gain these rite makes 
tile mistake of marrying James Parting, an 
intolerant provincial, who Is lu love with 
Iter. "She does nut. actually love him, in re- 
turn, but she i« grateful lor the respect he 
thews her, un attitude to which abe Is not

without success. In the midst of her dis-

nothing, and sends Cyril uway, and then ber 
husband returus. He announces that he has 
nrrungcil with Ills father that, be aud Jaque- 
llne should return to Hie elder Parting's

Here's a Verse and Chorus— it speaks for itself— by ANDREW STERLING and KERRY MILLS. 

When Louis cam© home to the flat, he hung up his coat and his hat, 
He gazed all. around, but no wlfey he found, so he said: "Where can Flossie be at ?' 
A note on the table he spied; he read It Just once, then he cried. 
It ran: "Louis dear, It's too slow for me here, so I think I will go for a ride." 

"Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis, meet Me at the Fair; 
Don't tell me the lights are shining, any place but there; 
We will dance the Hooohee Kooohee, I will be your tootsle wootsle, 
Meet me In St. Louis, Louis,, meet me at the Fair." 

Mississippi Mamie

Jack was in love with a village belle and soon they were to wed, 

He loved ber "not wisely, but too well," no the gossips said, 

'Till he awoke from his dream one day and heard with bowed down head, 

As they told him that his sweetheart had eloped with his comrade Ned. 

"Come, cheer up, Jack, Bhe's false, I know, like the rest of her sex i" one cried — 

"Tei] mc n woman on earth who's true I" Then tearfully Jack replied: 

"There Is one, only one, yon can trust her with your life ; 
There Is one, only one, not your sweetheart or your wife ; 
Sun or rain, Joy or pain, she will always cling to you, 
Rise or fall, best of all — your mother Is always true!" 
— Copyright 1004, by J. W. STERN A- CO. 

Time swiftly sped In the country town, Just In the same old way, 

Until It was whispered all around Ned had returned one day. 

He was alone, for she left him, too, the same aa she did Jack, 

For to both she'd proved herself untrue, and heartbroken he came bark. 

Grasping bis comrade by the hand, "like all woman, she's false!" he cried— 

■Tell me a woman on earth who's true!" Then softly poor Jack replied:

O* the* 

'Twas alx o'clock one evening as tbe factory whistle blew, 

The merry girls and laboring boys with dally toil were through ; 

And as a woman richly clad passed by to cross the street, 

One of the workmen's grimy bands her garments chanced to meet. 

She quickly turned and cried : "You wretch I Your hands have spoiled my dress !" 

"I beg your pardon." said tbe man quite humbly In distress. 

"I'd tell your foreman," she exclaimed, "If I but knew your name" 

He doffed his bat and answered this, as close to ber be came: 

*He» Tax* 

"My hands are not as clean as yours, 

And neither Is my face ; 
But one who earns his living ma'am. 

Regards that no disgrace. 
Clean bands oft' bold forbidden gold — 

You know tbe kind 1 mean — 
And altbo' my hands are stained with toll. 

The money they earn is clean !" 
—Copyright 1004, by J. W. STERN ft CO. 

A crowd aoon gathered 'round the scene as both stood proudly there, 

The laboring man with folded arms, the woman in despair. 

"I did not mean to grieve you, ma'am" he sold In accents soft, 

"liut 'tis tba truth I've spoken and I'm sure you've henrd It oft 

'It Is not gold that brings content but bow It has been earned 1' 

That Is n maxim of the heart at mother's knee 1 learned." 

The woman's tears began to flow: "Here, take this gift I" she slghcil, 

"I cannot take what I've not earned," he said with manly pride.

Mrs. Idah Gibson, recently Dress repre- 
sentative for one of Weber & Fields' com- 
panies, was amusingly admonished by her 
little colored maid the other morning, as she 
served that busy writer's breakfast 

"Where's my morning mall?" asked Sirs. 
Gibson, looking for the usual budget 

"AIM none dls mawnin', Mis Gibson, least, 
nothln' 'cep a postile cand," was the reply, 
"an' It got mixed with the grubbage I sent 
down on de dumb waltah dls mawnin'." 

"Who was It from?" asked Mrs. Gibson, 

orchestra, takes a tone loader than the 
others the effect Is often grotesque, u It 
was on this occasion, much to the player's 
mortification, besides eliciting a frown from 
the musical director. 

Though an angry remonstrance was oa 
the tip of the player's tongue It waa fore- 
stalled by the quick whispered apology of 
the gentleman of the long legs, who soon 
again became Interested In the stage. About 
fifteen minutes later, between acts, while the 
orchestra was dispensing music, his position 

the same time we can have a good cigar to- 
gether — perhaps, even, we can enjoy a nice 
long drink together." 

This good natured reply to the player's 
sarcasm waa productive of a happy result 
and the man's anger melted before It white 
his face took on an expression reflected from 
that of the other. 

"All right I see you later," he said. Then, as 
If not to be outdone In generosity, be moved 
his knee conveniently to the foot of tbe long- 
legged 'man, and added jocularly, "go on— 
take a shine now, old man, don't mind me." 

"Props 1" exclaimed the countryman. 
"Now, look here, stranger, yon wont need 
nothln' of the sort. Why, we've hsd over 
six hundred folks a-dancln' up here In this 
hall — there ain't a timber In this here floor 
but what'a solid. Props, Indeed!" he said 
Indignantly, turning on his heel before the 
manager could explain his needs. 

Ralph Stuart, recently playing at the Amer- 
ican Theatre, In "By Right of Sword," and 
the lato Stuart Robeon were warm friends. 
Rtusrt usually spends his vacatlona down at 
the Atlantic Highlands, and near there, at 
Waterwltcn, was tbe beautiful Summer homo 
owned by Robeon. Meeting as neighbors a 
few seasons ago, the two actors formed a 
deep friendship tbst tasted until tbe death 
of tbe elder one. 

"By the way," said Ralph Stuart to Stuart 
Robeon one day after they had become 
'neighborly,' "you probably don't remember 
having met me before this, do your 

well aware of the maid's propensity for ex- 
amining letters, peering Into bureau drawers, 
and other reprehensible acta prompted by 

"How you 'spec' me to know?" asked the 
maid, apparently deeply hurt by tbe insinu- 

'Well, it doesn't matter," said Mrs. Gib- 
eon. "No Important message would be 
written on a postal. None but foolish peo 
Pie use this means of communication, and a 
great many consider a postal an Imperti- 

"Pahdon me, Mis Gibson," said tbe maid, 
"but yon alnt very 'apectful to yo' mana- 
!*«, callln' 'em foolish people." 

That "a soft answer turneth away wrath" 
was amusingly Illustrated tbe other night at 
* theatre where the first row of orchestra 
•eats are usually close to the members of the 
orchestra, who are seated at a level of a foot 
below the auditorium floor. 

A very tall man came In and took one of 
these front seats, settling himself comfort- 
ably for an enjoyable time. While watching 
«n Interesting scene upon the stage he In- 
odventently stretched- one of his long legs 
out over the edge of the orchestra pit His 
well ghod foot came In sudden contact with 
the knee of one of the players who was earn- 
ing his salary by blowing breath through a 
wooden Instrument called a bassoon. At this 
foment the Incidental music accompanying 
toe scene was of a qolet nature, very planls- 
Jimo. The unexpected Impact of the foot and 
the kaee so startled the bassoon plsyer that 
"1 Put forth an extra pressure of breath, 
*-th a result that made his Instrument heard 
'"ore all the others. And when the bassoon, 
"Dich li caned the clown Instrument of the 

becoming cramped, be unconsciously stretched 
forth his foot which again came In contact 
with the knee of the bassoon player. An- 
other apology was In order, which was surlily 
accepted, with a word of criticism st the 
same time regarding a management that waa 
so rapacious for money that It put the seats 
almost Into the orchestra pit 

Unfortunately, a few mlnutea later, a third 
apology waa made necessary to tbe long suf- 
fering bassoon player, who, brushing Im- 
aginary dust from his trousers, angrily ex- 

"Look bere 1 If you're In need of a sblne 
I'll take yon out after the next act and treat 
you to one." 

The gentlemanly offender, realising that 
bis quite unintentional act waa displeasing 
even with full apologies, took the plsyer's 
remark good naturedly, and, with a reas- 
suring smile, said: 

"All right, old man, thanks I Perhaps ai 

Gordon Wrlghter, a veteran of many sea- 
sons of one night stands, relates an Instance 
attending one of them. The company with 
which he traveled waa at that time playing 
along a atrlng of small towns In Connecti- 
cut Very often the theatre would be located 
above the principal store of the town, and 
on this occasion It consisted of a large room 
above the grocery store. Tbe Janitor of tbe 
place had been appointed to his new position 
tbe day of the arrival of Wrlghter' ■ com- 
pany, consequently waa not up In all the 
details of bis work. Besides being tbe town 
blacksmith, be waa also baggageman, and after 
be had placed the trunks In tbe two dressing 
rooms, one of which waa for the feminine 
and one for the masculine members of the 
company, be waa approached by the mana- 
ger, who held a "prop" list In his band. 

"How ■hoot the props?" he asked, "We 
need qolts a number." 

"Can't say that I do," said Robsoo, "though 
I'm sure that's my loss," he added, with hla 
ever genial smile. "Why, where did ws meet 
previous to now?" 

"It was about a dozen years ago," replied 
the younger actor, with a reminiscent ex- 
pression on his handsome face. "I was tbe 
veriest 'cub' actor at the time. I went to 
rail on you In 'Frisco, emboldened by the 
fact that your first nsme and my last were 
the same— a flimsy excuse, bot the only one 
I could make use of at tbe time. You ware 
good enough to see me, and listen to a sample 
of my ability as It existed st that time. I 
'spoke a piece' for you," end the young 
actor burst Into laughter at the recollection 
of bla ranting, which waa an Immense con- 
trast to tbe quiet but extremely effective 
method tbat holda hla audiences these days. 

"Well, what did I say to your' asked 
Robson Interestedly. 

"You 'spoke' It after me," said Stuart 
"It happened to be something that yon knew, 
and Instead of tbe ranting and wind-saw- 
log with which I punctuated It, yoa gave It 
so quietly and so matter-of-fact tbat I 
couldn't help exclaiming, 'why I tbat la Just 
talking, that'a not acting at all I' " 

"Then what did I aay 7" asked Bobson. 

"You answered, 'My boy, you'v* found ma 
out 1 I'm no actor. I can't act a little bit" 

'Well, that'a the truth," replied Bobson, 
wrongly deprecating his well proved ability. 

"Ah, but that little experience taught ma 
much— yes, everything," said Stuart heartily. 
"It taught me tbat naturalness was tb* best 
way to get an effect— not to rant or roar, 
tbe old method. I adopted It forthwith, and 
have been practicing It ever since— with fair 
effect I hope," he added modestly.

lems are precisely similar In character to 
those of Mendhelm, even while they show a 
superior power of Invention, and even when, 
in some cases, tbey Involve the nse of qnlet 
moves." — (We gave, last week, a much ad- 
mired Illustration of Bolton's tendency 
toward realism.) 

"But such problems, though typical of 
much of Bolton's work, are not typical of 
bis best and most significant work. Hie long 
problem, as such, was a failure, but a failure 
iiot without Importance for the development 
of tbe problem. His work tended to prove 
1 be Incompatibility of tbe problem in more 
than five moves with the new Ideals. Tbe 
Ingenuity of the last champion of tbe long 

Broblem went far to give it Its death blow, 
ut almost all Bolton's moat valuable prob- 
lems were In five or six moves only. In snch 
positions os those cited in this series be 
attained a freedom and a subtlety that were 
beyond Anderssen, and beyond even Kllng. 
Though he did not aim at formal variety, yet 
tbe variation his inventions frequently In- 
volved, even tbougb generally short, was 
more natural and graceful than tbe me- 
chanical variation obtained by Kllng. If 
Bolton did nothing directly for the de- 
velopment of tbe problem In three or four 
moves, he yet certainly did a good deal to 
maintain the flve'er In a place of honor, and 
his five and six move problems point for- 
ward to the work, of Bayer and Klett." 

Mr. Allen adds some observations and re- 
flections on several of the problems selected 
as illustrative specimens of Bev. Mr. Bol- 
ton's work. Among tbe rest, especially on 
that famous 24.. "The Propeller," which 
we recently gave. This, Mr. B.'s "farewell 
to tbe art, 1 ' waa published In 1851. To this 
Mr. Allen adds : "It Is to be hoped that no 
solver will be frightened by its length. It 
differs from any problem of the school of 
Mendhelm In that It Involves a very definite 
Idea, and this once grasped the solution al- 
most plays itself." 

"Speaking generally, I think It will be 
found that Bolton's best problems give more 
pleasure, It also more trouble, to the solver 
than tboee of any of bis contemporaries." 

It may safely be said, we think, that the 
fourteen problems selected by the Fierce 
Bros, for "English Chess Problems," 1876, 
supplemented with those now cited by Mr. 
Allen In B. C. M., form the choicest collec- 
tion of the Bev. gentleman's problems tbat 
can be made, and tbat tbey give us the best 
standard for judging bis position In tbe long 
line of problematists. 



New* of the Game. 

It Is told of John Drummond, the great 
Scotch analyst, that one Sunday, while sick 
in bed, he had a friend visit him. When they 
heard tbe "guld wife" coming Drummond 
drooped back on bis pillow, telling his friend 
to hide the board and men with the bed 
quilt "for fear she may catch as at our de- 
votions." Bro. Maize, In speaking of 

It. I. Clegg, of Bhode Island, says: "Mr. 
Cleg? Is a distinguished engineer (civil) and 
editor of tbe Machinery Department, Iron 
and Steel Press Co., Cleveland, Chicago, 
Pittsburg, Detroit and New York. Like Mr. 
Clegg, we also have discovered that Call's 
round-snuare checker board Is a boom to 
weak, tired, aching eyes. For nearly a year 
naat we had to give up play and analysis 
because of the 111 effects that the angles, 
lines and contrasting colors of the ordinary 
board had on our eyes, but all that Is 
changed now, and we find that we can 
bpenu several hours at a stretch working 
out combinations on Call's Invention, and 
experience no injurious after effects on our 

organs of vision." The draughts editor 

of The Xottt Guardian recently waa told by 
a tyro what "first position" was. It la when 
the men are all placed on the board ready 
for play. While this Is quite true, It would 
be very Interesting to learn his views con- 
cerning "secoud," "tblrd" and "fourth po- 
sitions." These would have no terrors for 
him. But to nurse "Bomen'B Twins" and at 
the same time play "Barker's Triangle" 
would, we think, be rather a difficult feat 
even for our friend to accomplish. Judging 
by the weather, he Is no doubt well acquaint- 
ed with the "Mackintosh Position," and per- 
haps later on will require "Peterson's Draw-

Jan. 20. 

At a special matknee atthe Royalty Thea- 
tre on the 11th waa produced Sw«t "d 
Vanessa," a dramatization of Leon dejkall- 
ly's book by H. Bartholeyna. In this produc- 
tion A. Bartholeyns has given us a somewhat 
ambitions work on a Butyect which Is full of 
interest and dramatic posslbllltlea— in a 
word, a great subject That he has not t«ic- 
ceeded In making a great play need not dis- 
courage him, for a great play is a rare thing, 
nnd 77 8wlft and Vanessa" has good qualities. 
It Is well constructed and the characters are 
well conceived, but the play as It »t«ndsis 
far too long and too wordy, needing a good 
deal of iudlclons cutting, The key to the 
loves of Swift and the two Esthers, on which 
the action turns, bos not yet been found. Mr. 
Bartholeyns, and probably also Leon de Wail- 
ly, on whose romance the play la founded, 
assumes that Swift la aware of bis approach- 
lna* madness and Is firmly resolved never to 
marry. There is a pathos, a grandeur sur- 
rtmndlnK the figure of 8wlft, loving yet de- 
irylng his love ; passionate, yet sternly re- 
pressing bis passion, -which raises this play 
from the ruck of ordinary melodrama. For 
melodrama It Is, even to tbe Ill-starred he- 
roine starving in a garret, anda timely res- 
cue from a bold, bad knight ThlB Is a most 
Ill-advised scene, which presents the passion- 
ate, wayward Vanessa In a perfectly falso 
light, and renders her subsequent behaviour 
towards her rival, and her total disregard of 
ber promises to Swift, Incomprehenslve and 
theatrical. J. D. Beverldge gave a very fine 
rendering of the part of Swift. Hie appear- 
ance, his manner, his speech were all In har- 
mony, and the earlier comedy scenes were 
particularly happy. Mr. Beverldge might 
nave shown us a little more of the passion 
underlying tbe stern exterior of tbe man, 
might have allowed a little more of bis ten- 
derness for Vanessa to have tinged his man- 
ner towards hex; but perhaps tbe explana- 
tion lay In the comparative coldness of Mrs. 
Scarfe's rendering of the lovelorn Vanessa. 
Dora Barton was charming and girlish as the 
other Esther, known as Stella, whilst Dennis 
Eftdle acted unaffectedly and earnestly as tbe 
curate of Laxacor. . 

Mr. Bourchlor has, I hear, received an 
offer to transfer the entire production of his 
version of "The Cricket on tbe Hearth" to 
America. The chief difficulty of arranging 
this Is tbe Impossibility of fixing an approxi- 
mate date for the termination of the present 
successful run at the Garrick Theatre. Should 
matters be concluded, It is not unlikely tbat 
those members of the present cast not re- 
quired for the next Garrick play will go to 
America with this production.

the managers of the Casino Music Hall,

Mile. Dutrleu pleaded that she was first en-

of time came to the conclusion that the con- 
tract had fallen through, and made arrange- 
ments to appear at the Casino. The Isolas 
then called on ber to carry out tbe first en-

judgment, dismissing the Isola Brothers from 
the case, and mulcting Mile. Dutrlen In

"Dan," the flying dog. Is one of the clever- 
est and best known conlnes In vaudeville, 
and the confidence In bis master 1b striking 
when "Dan" climbs to the top of a high lad- 
der and Jumps from tbe top Into Fred

Seymour Hicks and Mr. Caryl], most 
genial and prosperous of callaborators, have 
just undertaken two new plays for certain 
members of the Savoy Company to appear 
in under W. Greet. They are already at 
work on the first, which Is to be called 
"Madame Modiste,'' and is to be finished by 
October, as successor to "The Earl and tne 
Girl," at ChrlBtmas, or at any later date al- 
lowed by tbe popularity of tbat production 
at the Adelpbl. 

The following Is the cast of "The Love 
Birds," the new musical play, by Messrs. 
George Grossmlth Jr. and Raymond Roze, 
In which Geo. Fuller Golden Is to make bis 
stellar debut at the Savoy Theatre on Feb. 
0. The announced cast Is : Oracle Rocking- 
ham, Kate Cutler; Effle. Blanche Ring; Mrs. 
Wilson Weste, Lottie Venne ; Phyllis, Noel 
Neville ; Courteney Borroprop, George Ful- 
ler Golden ; Alec Rockingham, Sidney lirough ;

The feud between Mr. Bonrcbler and tbe 
critic of The Timet has been patched up, 
as the following correspondence will show. 

"Dear Mr. Walkley : I much regret tbat 
tn a moment of excitement 1 should have 
forbidden your entrance Into this theatre 
on the night of Monday, March 2, 1903. 
Will, you accept my apologies, consider by- 
gones as bygones, and come to this theatre 
in the future sb a welcome guest and in- 
dependent critic. Yours sincerely, 

Abthcb Boubcbieb." 

"Dear Mr. Bourchler ; I have sincere pleas- 
ure In acknowledging the receipt of your 
letter of yesterday. I have not borne any 
rancor. I only felt— and The Timet felt, 
too — that I could not go to the theatre 
from which I bad been publicly excluded, 
without that exclusion being publicly with- 
drawn and apologised for. You have done 
this, and generously admitted a mistake of 
judgment. The whole matter Is, therefore, 
at on end, so far as you and I are concerned, 
and I shall go to the Garrick Theatre with 
pleasure. Yours sincerely, A. B. Walklbt." 

At the Strand Theatre on Monday last 
a copyright performance wbb given of a new 
light comedy, In three sets, by Victor Wld- 
nell, entitled "The Orange Blossom." 

It Is quite possible tbat Beerbohm Tree may 
be obliged to relinquish bis part In "The 
Darling of tbe Gods a little later on, and 
E. W. Somerset has already been retained 
to take bis place In that contingency. 

Mr. Plnero'8 clever play, "Letty," reached 
Its 100th performance at the Duke of York's

Frank Lincoln, the American humorist, 
has been engaged to provide an entertain- 
ment by way of a curtain raiser to "The 
Duke of Ellllecrankle," which Is to be seen 
for the first time at the Criterion Theatre 
tonight Mr. Lincoln's entertainment will 
present several features with which his au- 
dience are unfamiliar. 

I regret to have to announce tbe death of 
James E. Moss, the eldest son of H. E. Moss. 
Mr. Moss was taken HI Jan. 4, at the bouse 
of Robert Crawford, Newbank, Trinity, his 
father-in-law, with what was supposed at 
first to be Influenza, but what later on was 
diagnosed as a very acute type of typhoid 
fever. He had come In from the estate of 
Mtddletown to assist his father in the pro- 
duction and conduct of his nlneteteentb car- 
nival In the Waverly Market, and it was 
during tbe third week of the show that be 
had to lay up. Mr. Moss was only twenty- 
three years of age. 

According to the London Pavilion report 
for 1003 the gross receipts amounted to 
£03,209, and the outgoings to £40,184, leav- 
ing a net profit of £23,084 odd. Tbe divi- 
dend is 10 per cent, with a bonus of 1 per 
cent., compared with 13 per cent for 1002. 
Frank Glenlster's Judgment has been n great 
factor In the company's success In what for 
all entertainments, was a poor year. 

Houdtnl's exploits In Newcastle are being 
widely chronicled by the papers of that city. 
The following account from The Leader de- 
scribes a very Interesting experiment: "Barry 
Houdinl, the world-famous prison breaker

Scott unexpectedly asked him to try what he

Savage's Eastern and Western "Prince of

capacity. For a time the receipts of one or- 
ganisation lead those of the other, which 
then draws up to and passes Its opponent.

The hone does fancy steps and tricks of 
various kinds, balancing alto on hla bind

The dogs are Terr cute, running In and out 
among the feet of the bone as be dances 
and prances about The act deserves rank

That the remarkable woman, Mllly Capell, 

with her beautiful high school bone and ber 
kennel of well trained dogs, la at Shea's this 
week, In an act that creates a sensation. 
It out clanei any ilmtlar act ever seen In

Dogs that would delight a Landseer, a 
bone tbst a Rosa Bonheur would rare oyer, 
a woman that would make a fit model for a 
Sir Joshua Reynolds, gave mucb pleasure to 
a large audience In the Temple Theatre last 
night. In truth Milllcent Capell, or Mllly

her stunning Arabian bone and her beauti- 
ful hunting dogs, presented a wonderful 

Mllly Capell. the beautiful equestrienne, 
who made such a big bit at Keith's last 
season, reappeared with her magnificent horse 
and trained hunting dogs, and repeated ber 
big triumph. Miss Capell la a striking look- 
ing woman, and when she made ber entrance 
on the stage, dashing In upon ber magnificent 
horse, the audience broke Into a prolonged 
and spontaneous outburst of appreciation. 
The hone did a number of really clever teats. 
wsltslog In perfect time to the music, and 
everything he did was Imitated by a sagacious 
canine. Then, as a final feat the hone 
walked a cakewalk with Its mistress, while 
three dogs ran In and out, making a figure 

deservedly hearty aa- 
ilnUon and applause.— THE NEWS, Provi-

A magnificent horte, perfected In the "high 
school" steps, yet hardly ascending to the 
dignity of a complete "menage act— as the 
circus people style It beneath the big tent— 
a jauntily clad equestrienne, and five trained 
does constitute the novelty feature at the 
Columbia thla week. Mllly Capell, billed as 
Europe's greatest equestrienne and animal 
trainer, really presents an act that consider- 
ing the limitations Imposed by the stage, is 
most meritorious, even though It necessarily 
does not Include many of even the simpler 
features to be found where the band plays 
and the red lemonade flows. It Is a novelty, 



and scores a hit If for no other reason

equestrienne. Miss Capell made her reno- 
pearance hut night and with ber beautiful

occasionally from the seclusion of stage man- 
nsemenl, did capital work. John Westley.

the management of the Shea Amusement 
Company. It was originally^ produced^at 
Jamestown, N. Y., Sept 24. 1903, and has 
since been played successfully on the road. 
The popularity of George Evans, familiarly, 
known, as "Honey Boy?' In his vaudeville 
specially, ensured him a generous welcome 
on his initial appoarnme in this city jisis 
Btar, nnd this he received from n house. 
Idled in evnry part, when be made his bo*r,

Prootor'a Fiftr*elKhth Street The- 
atre (J. Austin Fynes, general manager).— 
ICellar, assisted by Mrs. Kellar, opened the 
week at this bouse on Monday, Feb. 8, and 
attracted a large and appreciative audience, 
whom he mystified, notwithstanding that 
the closest attention was bestowed upon bis 
every motion. Borrowed hats that yielded 
an almost Inexhaustable supply of ribbons, 
flowers nnd clothing were in evidence as of 
yore.' Card tricks were there galore, and the 
levltatlon of one of his female assistants was 
apparently new to the majority of his au- 
dience. Second sight, table moving, light- 
ning calculating, cabinet manipulations and 
the usunl gamut of irlrks w«r« run through, 
all apparently being enjoyed. by the audience, 
which was largely composed of young people. 
Sunday's concerts attracted the usual large 
jiaylng crowds, Feb. 7. Next week, Harry

appearnce as Viola, In Shakespeare's comedy, 
"Twelfth N'lght," before an audience that 
filled the house. The text was divided Into 
four acts and ten scenes, nnd the work was 
given a handsome setting. Miss Allen's tem- 
perament and nbilities well fit her for this 
charming Shakespearean heroine, and she 
■gave a very satisfactory performance. She 
revealed many of the most charming attri- 
butes of Viola, running the gamut of its 
moods cleverly and daintily. Without com- 
parison With the Violas of the past we may 
wifely say that few within the past two de- 
codes have .proved as pleasing. With few 
exceptions the supporting company did ex- 
cellent work, and lent good aid In giving a 
thoroughly enjoyable performance. The cast

Circle Theatre (Percy O. Williams, 
manager).— Talented Vesta Tlllcy was^n 
magnet whoso potency attracted audiences 
which- tested tho capacity on each occasion 
of her nppearanco last week, and Is Just as 
suro to do so this week. Perhaps the on-. 
nouncement that this Is Miss Tlllcy s only 
engakfuient In vtiudovllle partly accounts 
for the tremendous voguo this clever woman 
is now eujoylng at Mr. Wllllnms' playhouse. 
It demonstrates two facts, however, the de- 
sire to witness real talent, and Manager 
Williams' business sagacity In affording ino 
nubile an opportunity to do so. The bill 
this week Is also entertaining In other d me-, 
tlons, notably In tho flrst appearance here 
of Geo. r. Boniface Jr. and Bertha WalUlug- 
er, In their ooaiedlctta, by Louis Do Lange, 
entitled "The Woman Who Hesitates Is 
Won." There was no hesitation on the part 
of the large Monday audience in convincing 
l hr- plavers thut. their bright lltle playlet 
had won success. Maymo Remington and 
her Bungle Boo Loo Rallies scored strongly 
In one of tho best offerings In Its way : Ne- 
vlns and Arnold appeared In a ucat singing 
nnd dancing specialty, the Orpheus Comedy 
Four sustained a prominent place on, the 
schedule lu good shape. Rapnll proved to- bo 
n deft Juggler. James F. McDonald sang ac- 
ceptably, Fisher and Wacker, Tyrolean

series of Interesting views. ; •

Proctor's Twenty-third Street The- 
atre (J. Austin Fynes, general manager).— 
1 hl3 week the headllners are John C. Rice 
and Sally Cohen, who have again taken up 
the vaudeville end of the amusement pro- 
viding business. They' kept a SmmAn 
audience on Feb. 8 on the Jump In the mat- 
ter of laughter with "Our Honeymoon, a 
skit which had plenty^ of bright lfnes and a 
'ood move on It in the matter of "action, 
loth principals In its Interpretation scored 
ill their comedy points well, and the result 
was oleaslng all around. OBrlen and 
Tllvel brouiSt forth the Will M. Cressy 
rketch, "Ticks and Clicks," and aroused a 
storm of applause. Tommy O'Brien s clever 
acrobatic work, and Clara Havel's excellent 
efforts, were voted the genuine article, If 
their reception meant anything. A novcltv

Dewey Theatre (Sullivan & Kraus, man- 
agers). — Judging by the crowds which flocked 
to tbis house Feb. 8, there was a manifest 
, intention on the part of the Dewey patrons 
to give L. Lawrence Weber's Parisian 
Widows Co: 'a royal welcome upon Its first 
visit to this city this season. Long before 
the curtain rose upon the first skit every 
seat was filled, and expectation was rife as 
to what the new company would offer to sus- 
tain the excellent reputation of those which 
had appeared here under Mr. Weber's man- 
agement. Comparisons were soon forgotten, 
however, and the bright and lively farce of 
"Roses and Onions, which fairly scintil- 
lates with comedy lines, and Is musically 
as clover as anything seen here this season, 
had completely won Its way, and placed the 
company upon that surest of pedestals — pub- 
lic favor. Following Is' the cast : Conan Graff,

obliged to do a single act, as Flora Simpson, 
through Illness, was unable to appear on

eral good comedy sketches listed here this 
week and prominence Is given to the act of 
Dan Crimmins and Rosa Gore, late stars of 
"A Warm Match" Co., in a scene from that 
musical comedy, during which Miss Gore 
did some wonderfully quick and elaborate 
changes of costumes. Their reception on 
Monday was cordial In the extreme, and they 
scored the unqualified success and recogni- 
tion their work fully entitled them to. Wal- 
ter Le Roy and Florence Clayton. In "Hogan 
of. the Hansom," added another link to their 
chain of successes In metropolitan vaude- 
ville, and comedy was again in evidence in 
Frank Gardiner's playlet, "An Idyl of the 
Links." With sprightly Lottie Vincent and 
Harry Bartlette as assistants, Mr. Gardi- 
ner's skit pleased. La Troupe Carmen sur- 
prised many In their work upon the wire; 
the Maglnloys, aerial gymnasts; Herbert 
Lloyd, assisted by Lillian Lllynn, In a comedy 
juggling act, were excellent, and Mr. Lloyd 
deserves much credit for bis new "props" 
and original comedy effects, which are 
also new ; Adamlnl and Taylor, musical 
net ; Flood Bros., comedy acrobnts ; Louise 
. Henry, "The Sal Skinner Gal;" Bros. Otto, 
German comedians and songs and dances ;

net Is given unstintedly and with a warmth 
. that carries conviction, and there is no the- 
atre la this country' whose clientel 1b more 
loyal to manager and performers alike than

edy sketch, "The. Infant," renewed- old ac- 
quaintances and made new friends with

merry monologue, and with new songs, was 
cordially welcomed. We know of no per-

through steady perservorance and talents 
properly directed. The bill Includes: Fer-

tain speech to a production made, here 
vears ago .of a. clever (satire, and ex- 
presses the hope that in Mr. Broad- 
hdr«t's play a worthy composition on the 
MM order would be found. With this duly 
impressed upon the mind of the auditor, 
considerable humor is to be found In the 
heroics' Of the play, and as there Is a rather 
nretty lOve story to claim attention, some 
good comedy and entertaining dialogue, a 
success was scored by play and star. The 
fourth and last act held the Interest re- 
markably well, and the action was well 
sustained until the final curtain, which Is 
a state of affairs well worthy of comment. 
Its story tells of how Robert, crown 
Brlnce of .Morflntla, meets Cecelia, queen 
S Khodoland. at a ball, and though they 
have been betrothed since their early 
childhood, they have never seen each other, 
and. still In the dark as to each others 
iaentitv, they fall In love at first sight It 
then transpires that the Duke of Burnell, of 
Khodoland, Is Implicated In schemes to kill 
Robert and ascend the throne of Morunlla, 
and he secures possession of valuable papers 
giving ,plan& Of Morantla's defences. Robert 
turns highwayman, holds up the duke, takes 
the papers away from him, and being seen 
bv the queen In this high handed act is 
immediately suspected by her as being an or- 
dinary brigand. But finally, after many 
trifels, In which the queen aids him on several 
occasions, Robert at length convinces ber 
that he is the crown prince, and Is In turn 
brought to realize that she Is queen, the 
usual happy ending then being in order. 
Mr. Hackett, whose most conspicuous suc- 
cesses havo beeh made In costume parts, ap- 
peared to splendid advantage In the leading 
role, and did some very good comedy work, 
as well as scoring In the more strenuous 
situations. He never ranted, having pitched 
his voice to a subdued key, and his 
acting was particularly good where a com- 
edy scene fell, to his lot. Chflj-lotte Walker, 
In a Juliet costume, made a dfttnty, girlish 
heroine, and played with charming In- 

own company, la the Charles B. Blaney and Howard Hall's melo-
